Observe & Collect Data
Conducting the Research Lesson!
The day of the research lesson the team engages in a pre-brief to set expectations and share their lesson goals with others who will be observing the lesson – often colleagues, other educators, and community members.
During the lesson, each team member closely observes the thinking of their assigned focus student and collects data. What did their focus student say and do? What factors contributed to any 'a-ha' moments?
After the research lesson, the team reflects on what they are learning about their research question and theory of action and hear from the content and equity commentators.
